Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so I wanted to get started right away with my decorating. First project of the year, this simple Valentine DIY love sign.
Since the farmhouse style is so popular right now I wanted to make a farmhouse style DIY love sign. But I wanted it to be a sign you can keep up all year long. This sign is absolutely perfect for that!
Supplies needed to make your own DIY love sign:
- Unfinished 12×12 Wood Shadowbox
- Cricut Vinyl Sampler Roll
- White Americana Decor Chalky Paint
- Silhouette Cameo
- Transfer Paper
- Wood Stain
- Paint Brush
I used a dark walnut stain for my shadow box and I only needed one coat of stain. Let dry 3 hours.
Make sure to smooth it down so that your vinyl will stick to your wood. You can use a credit card or if you have the Silhouette tool already.
Now it’s time to add your paint!! I used chalk paint for this project. I always love using chalk paint for my signs. It really gives it the look I want. I did a total of two coats, letting each coat dry 30 minutes.
When I first saw this shadow box I knew it would be perfect to use for a farmhouse inspired sign. Everyone loves the look of farmhouse signs (Thank’s Chip and Joanna), but not everyone has the tools to make them. So this is a great frame to use to get the farmhouse look!
